Reference EN 60851-5:2008
Title Winding wires - Test methods - Part 5: Electrical properties
Project Number 21079
Abstract/Scope IEC 60851-5:2008 specifies the following tests: - Test 5: Electrical resistance; - Test 13: Breakdown voltage; - Test 14: Continuity of insulation; - Test 19: Dielectric dissipation factor. Significant revisions to the previous edition include the following points: - In Subclause 5.3, the addition of the use of carbon brush electrodes for the counting discontinuities during the high voltage continuity test, as an alternative to the V-groove pulley electrode; and - Clarifications in the breakdown voltage test for round wires larger than 2,500 mm and for fibrous covered wires.

Normative reference (6) EN 60851-1:1996

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
